    1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, and cayenne. Whisking constantly, add milk in a thin stream until combined. Whisk in Agave In The Raw® and orange zest.
    2. Heat over medium, whisking occasionally, until mixture is steaming and bubbles start to appear on the sides of the pan. Remove from the heat and whisk in vanilla.
